We are transferring to Jenzabar this summer so we were exposed to the
Retention Management System during the demonstration phase.  What we
discovered is that we already had something very similar in place that was
"home grown" and connected to our Datatel system (so similar that if we had
copyrighted our system....).  Our home grown version has been extremely
helpful not just with students at risk of not completing their education,
but with preventing more drastic situations because the improved
communication that it provides about student concerns.

I think that the Jenzabar retention package would be very similar and I am
hoping that we will be adding it, or something very similar to it, as we
transition to Jenzabar.  I just wish it wasn't quite so expensive....
